Well after several months developing the rules and a year or more saying to my mate about doing a campaign, we are about to commence hostilities from this coming Friday. All the joys of supply and replacements and 300k points of troops each to deploy on a map just over 2k squares. Will post a commentry and battle reports as they happen and will post up the rules we are using for the campaign once i find somewhere to load them upto.

Bit pale but this is the map, our main copies are 9xA4 in size and coloured, but this was what i was using for planning etc
Of the sectors 8 have hives and a manafactorium and middle sector is empty, we are starting with 4 random sectors each of which i got middle left, top right, bottom left and bottom middle. My 2 areas are blue bordered my oponents is red bordered. The red and blue squares are mountains/sea/rivers and are impassable, black lines are roads. woods and hills are just denser areas of those. Full movement etc in rules below

certainly worth doing, deployment and first move tonight and can't wait. If you play with regular people and they are commited it is worth doing. Had done one about 10 years ago but fizzled out due to commitment from others and rules a bit boggy and paper work really lots of work.

After some confusion on rules and forgetfulness on both sides (lol) we started and have done first 2 turns and resulted in 5 battles to be fought.
A smaller play test of the rules may of been more prudent. Bit much doing supply but it does make it important as was the plan.
Will do up the 2 turns and deployment shortly

Some tweaking will happen to them, bit heavy paperwork wise, but easily scaled down. for the size we are playing may off been better to have an overall commander with several captains to play the battles out.

Photos of the battle here:-

http://s1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb4 ... 0turn%202/

All i can say is that it was well fought, although i lost I did inflict more damage to my opponent and as part of a campaign looking at long gains.

Howards army (He described it as a scouting army
2 x warlord bg's
1 x Reaver bg
1 x knight household

My Army
1 x warlord bg
1 x knight household
1 x knight lancer household
1 x knight lancer det
1 x maurader fighter bomber
2 x tg titan defence companies

My mate deployed all in one corner. I deployed more in a line with titans centre and equal troops flanking them.

Turn 1
My 2 warp missiles failed to hit. The knights clashed near an objective and rest of armies moved to close to shooting range.

Turn 2
My lancers take out a warlord titan. One of my warlords gets a reactor breach but repairs in end phase. Luckily one of howards titans fails to repair its breach and blows> 15 vs 34 to me. need 43vp to win or 34 in broken troops.

Turn 3
I Ko a rreaver titan, howard still shooting away at my titans. My knights take alot of incoming fire but their shields work well and am able to make a lot of saves. 15 vs 39

Turn 4
All changes as i loose my knights and a warlord that melts down. end 29 vs 39

Although i scored higher I made some mistakes like shooting at a titan with shields with a non minus weapon getting them mixed up which one i had taken shields down. Shame about my warp missiles aswell but thats what you get with those, they either work well or disappoint. My deployment worked well in i suspected he would put something on the hill (not all his army) and the buildings gave me some cover.
The knight lancers worked well and my titans held their own.

Arrhhh, campaigns... I always found we all maintained enthusiasm for the first campaign turn... three weeks later real life takes over. Good luck ! :-) Like the look of the rules (and the old school titan action.) Look forward to following the game :-)

In the supply section it states, "Each Hive City generates 1D6 of supply counters/chits per turn". I read this as rolled per turn, not rolled once and then per turn that value is applied.

Post subject:  Re: Large Campaign begining

is rolled each turn. not applied each turn. Have an amendment for the supplies and reinforcements for easier paperwork aswell to put in
